Royal Holloway Professor Sandra Halperin gave a compelling lecture last week at our Global Development Seminar Series. Drawing on her most recent book, Re-Envisioning Global Development: a Horizontal Perspective, Sandra critiqued Eurocentric tellings of development – calling for a broader narrative that acknowledges the horizontal spread of capitalist development, and the implications of this for global development thinking and practice today.

Listen to the talk:
